Hibs Can Agogo Far

26 September 2011 10:47
A pair of strikers on form is just what Hibs need to get away from the bottom of the league Junior Agogo can see a bright future ahead for Hibs as he and Garry O'Connor get to know each other better. The partnership helped Hibs secure a draw against Dundee United when it looked all set for another disappointing day at the office for the Easter Road men when United went 3-1 up. The pair got a goal apiece as Hibs went 1-0 up and then had to come back after United took control. It was Agogo who laid on O'Connor's eighth goal of the season, only for a Jon Daly brace and a Danny Swanson strike to send United clear. United's lead did not last for long as Scott Robertson put through his own goal and O'Connor returned the favour to lay on a goal for Agogo. The former Nottingham Forest striker believes he and O'Connor have what it takes to bring the good times back to Easter Road. The Ghana international said: "This was the first 90 minutes I've played since coming here. In the next few months I'll get fitter and hopefully get a few more goals. We score a load of goals in training, me and Garry - hopefully we'll get some more in games. He's a legend around here but, more than that, he's a top boy and great for the lads. His goal was a great finish. We work off each other well. I like to drop deep and he can work the channels. We complement each other well and we'll be working hard in training to make sure we bring out the best in each other on matchdays. It's been stop-start from me since I've come here but I'm feeling good with every day that passes." Dundee United manager Peter Houston will be holding an inquest into how his men managed to let a commanding lead slip, after being the much better side for most of the game. John Rankin, in particular, was superb for the visitors and had a hand in all three goals for the away side. He also narrowly missed out of getting on the scoresheet himself, lobbing inches over the bar in the first half.After the game the midfielder admitted he is enjoying his football again after an ill-fated spell at Easter Road, and it certainly showed in a lively, dynamic display at his old stomping ground.  Houston said: "John's been like that all season for us. His character and attitude is spot on and he's a very good player. For 90 minutes he was excellent. His use of the ball, pressing, movement and attacking play was terrific. Overall you look at John Rankin and you have to say he's been a great signing."
